From another This Ain’t Hell post. In Dallas, a woman was staying at her parents house. Around midday, she heard someone break into the home. Two armed intruders started up the stairs. She confronted the two, fatally shooting one. WFAA has the details.
Here is another example of why citizens need to have access to arms to defend themselves. She was upstairs. The intruders where blocking her exit route, and they were armed. If she would have relied on 911, she probably would have been dead before the police could arrive. Remember, if someone uses violence to enter your home, they will not hesitate to use violence against you. Especially if they are armed.
